Fostering Immigrant Integration

Changing demographic, economic, social and political factors make it imperative to integrate limited English-speaking immigrants into our communities. Opportunities to learn English and contribute to society are key strategies for fostering integration. Through Project SHINE, our work focuses on helping immigrant elders prepare for citizenship, work, acquire health literacy skills, and engage in meaningful civic roles.
